Today I'm going to take Dr-Rotwang's Adventure Funnel and use it to develop a scenario for Sunday's Pirates vs. Vampire game. Before I can jump in and start creating, I do need to consider my player characters:
Alaric Anchorman: Swashbuckling former lieutenant of the Royal Navy and aspiring young "privateer".
Hector Valdez: A former blood thrall and current member of the anti-vampire resistance.
John "Mad Jack" Murphy: Ships' doctor and resident vampire-hunting specialist (and my own npc/occasional pc).
(As-Yet-Unnamed): A merchant-trader with an interest in Jewish mysticism.I'm going to assume that the characters are already serving on a privateer ship that is operating at the behest of anti-vampire personages in the British government. Young Alaric is not currently captain, but I expect that he will be thrust into that role early in the adventure.
SPOILER ALERT [My Players Should Turn Back]
